Where to buy Rooster Collars 2021
Adelaide Chicken Sitting Service Blog

I do not sell any products. Please see sellers links below. ​Noisy roosters can be quietened down by the use of a rooster collar. It will not stop a rooster from crowing but can reduce the level of the sound he makes. This works by restricting the amount of air he can draw in when attempting to crow. The effectiveness of a rooster collar will depend on the breed and the correct or incorrect positioning of the collar. Different brands can make a difference. The NO CROW collars are wider and have a breathable mesh. The COCK COLLARS are all one piece of velcro but are more beneficial on the sho ..read more

I am truly honoured to be featured in the Feb/March 2021 issue of Australasian Poultry magazine.

Levamisole Toxicity
Adelaide Chicken Sitting Service Blog
by
6M ago
​This is post from an unknown author on a poultry Facebook group. Levamisole is the active ingredient in broad-spectrum chicken worming products. It is one of the most effective products to use. However, I often hear about people using it in a food source rather than given as a liquid. I always recommend the liquid way given with a 5ml syringe. The article below is written from a goat owner's perspective, but also applies to chickens. For those who advise adding Levamisole (worming product) - Kilverm, Nilverm, Avitrol etc to treats such as bread or porridge, it's really not an appropriate w ..read more

If you have been previously following me on Facebook, you may have noticed that my business page suddenly disappeared during late August 2020. Its back up now with a new address. I do not have a user name as yet due to technical difficulties. Facebook had taken down my personal FB profile page as I was an Admin of an FB group. Because the posts in the group were constantly violating FB policy: words were causing a triggering - our group was not only taken down BUT all the Admins also lost their personal pages. This in turn took down my business page with it. I've returned and have started ..read more

Best time to give Ivermectin
Adelaide Chicken Sitting Service Blog
by
6M ago
Being an advocate of the use of Ivermectin on chickens to treat mites, I have learnt that the application time is key. This is based on the veterinary advice to not consume eggs from treated birds for up to 14 days (2 weeks). EGG WITHHOLD So you can imagine the idea of horror that fills a chicken owner's mind when we are told to "bin the eggs".  Since mites are the most active in the warmer months there is a sweet spot in the calendar that makes it a bit more bearable, in particular for those of us who own heritage hens rather than hybrids. Heritage hens have a laying cycle that has a ..read more
